Why, when gals don' feel 'cuddly', or can't stand being in the room w/ their baby (as on the doctors tv show) are they not prescribed oxytocin? Ali

Why, when gals don' feel 'cuddly', or can't stand being  in the room w/ their baby (as on the doctors tv show) are they not prescribed oxytocin? Ali

Good thought: Synthetic oxytocin, pitocin, is only used intravenously to help with labor. The new mom should be making plenty of her own oxytocin. Being a new mom, and not getting enough sleep, can make it difficult to bond with a baby at first. This will come with time. If her feelings are intense, and do not improve, she should be seen by her doctor to see if she has postpartum depression. ...Read more

Certain metabolic conditions can change the odor, and possibly taste of urine, but your experience is likely the result of your recent dietary intake. If you are otherwise healthy, it would be highly unlikely that you have a metabolic condition. ...Read more

Last resort maybe form a tv club! at least you won't be alone! ...Read more

Why do I see tv shows with real doctors in the or with hair and earrings sticking out? We didn't used to do that.

Not reality: Medical personnel on tv (and movies) are projecting an image which is not necessarily reality. Actors want to be seen in an individualized way that can lead to further acting work and an identity recognized by the public. Nice hair, body jewelry, even tattoos can project that image. Unfortunately the image of the invincible physician has created a climate for malpractice for actual doctors. ...Read more
